Mayday Parade - Let's Be Honest Lyrics




This is a warning
I can feel it in the air
I know I shouldn't be here
I should be sleeping in my bed
I've got a bad, bad feeling
I've been running my mouth
The more I speak
The more your clothes come off
I've made my bed
But I don't belong here

I'm a sinking ship
I'm that cut that won't heal right
Let's be honest
You might think I'm good as gold
I'm that fire that warms your soul
I will let you down

Another warning
Another sad day will pass me by
No, I never told you
You were the last thing on my mind
I've got a bad feeling it's meant to be
It's like you knew
I'm sorry for the way that I gave up on you

Best friends stick together
Just like best friends always do
I'd rather cross my heart
Than make this right
I swear these things to you

I'm a sinking ship
I'm that cut that won't heal up
Let's be honest
You might think I'm good as gold
I'm that fire that warms your soul
I will let you down

And I bet, I bet you believe every lie I've ever told
And I swear, I swear we can make it if we just forget everything that we know
Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! There goes giving your heart away
Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! There goes giving your heart away
Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! There goes giving your heart
Your heart, your heart!

I'm a sinking ship
I'm that cut that won't heal right
Let's be honest
You might think I'm good as gold
I'm that fire that warms your soul
I will let you down

You down! [x3]

Mayday Parade Let's Be Honest Comments
  1. Jada

    I miss this sound. Please come back for album 7.

  2. S J

    On repeat for a thousand years

  3. Tom Jarreau

    1SG rank is upside down hahaha

  4. xSpicy Noodlezzzx

    I love everything about this song 🖤

  5. MrSonic43

    This has to be Mayday Parade’s best song and music video. Something about the song feels just like them, it’s melancholy and pessimistic

  6. The Celtic Magician

    I love the passion and the screams!

  7. skramz kid

    sooo underrated!! one of their best, if you ask me...

  8. Kabz

    This is criminally underveiwed!

  9. _tragician._ x

    “best friends stick together, just like best friends always do”
    💕

  10. The Guy Who Games

    Amazing. Fucking. Song.

  11. Farida Wally

    whenever I see this was uploaded on my birthday, I get happy. It was the best birthday present ever.

  12. Canttouchthis04

    What an amazing change in style. Still sounds like mayday, but they've matured and changed enough to still be interesting and fresh. I'm a huge fan of their first three albums, and I'm just a big a fan of this one. Kind of reminds me of Brand New, who is also amazing.

  13. gianni de piano

    Haven't I already heard this song? Oh yeah... The Used - Empty With You

  14. ToSufferQuietly music

    I got this stuck in my head. But damn I love it

  15. Jakemanesha james

    I love this.

  16. Ethan Hittle

    MAYDAY MAYDAY

  17. shadow of the day

    this music video is AWESOME 😍

  18. Emolu

    Wtf even is this video

  19. Cyber Imp

    What's this song about ?

    Adrian Star Official

    Not sure about the song lyrics, but the video... The characters are in a cheesy show and the captain is growing disgruntled with the show and wants to get out of it. That's why he quits reacting to the shaking submarine and explodes in the dressing room. At the end, he ends up being replaced by the janitor to a younger actor.

    CheyenneDoryBob

    Sounds like a struggle with depression. He's a mess that'll ruin you, hell break you and leave you hurting. You see the good but he knows better. He's warning you he's no good and he crashes a lot, hes just there to disappoint. Ya he hopes they work out in the long run, but he's so messed up he's scared. Make sense?

  20. Seshdoll

    Obsessed 😍

  21. Oziel Prado

    You down! [x3]

  22. Jorge Ibarra

    I freaking love this song and all of "Black Lines" but I can't help but feel that Jason would've thrived on the heavier music. Jake did an amazing job tho!!!

  23. melissa marquez

    they need to make more songs like this something that gets me pumped up

  24. May Shouman

    when it's actually good music it doesn't get as many views as a singer who can't even sing and just strips in a music video

  25. TheApocalypse231

    never really got into black lines as much as their other albums. sigh

  26. mitch strange

    DAMN 3:10-3:14 * - *

  27. Matthew Lim

    can anyone explain the video? lol

    Adrian Star Official

    The characters are in a cheesy show and the captain is growing disgruntled with the show and wants to get out of it. That's why he quits reacting to the shaking submarine and explodes in the dressing room. At the end, he ends up being replaced by the janitor to a younger actor.

  28. Fadhli Azim

    Rock on!

  29. smckenzie92

    Your guys decision to go heavier was a great move. Don't let anyone tell you any different. It's been fun to listen to

  30. Gin Ichimaru

    clipe louco kk

  31. Le Honkler

    Feelings towards the song aside, I think nobody has a clue what the actual hell is going on in the video.

    Adrian Star Official

  32. Interestingenough4

    This sounds more like Armor for Sleep or Anberlin than it does "true" Mayday Parade. I like it, though, it's a nice stylistic change.

  33. Tyler Gesselman

    How has this band survived for so long after Jason left?

    DieGinny

    Of course it survived, why wouldn't it? Mayday Parade without Jason is still Mayday Parade, but Jason without Mayday Parade is just Jason... I never understood why people acted like Jason is some kind of god and was the only reason why Mayday Parade was worth a listen.
    They are pretty damn good the way they are right know, I don't think they lack "Jason" at all :)

  34. Edwin DeJesus

    they were amazing at warped like usual

  35. Farrah, I guess

    As a mayday parade fan for about 5 years now I can only say their music has changed and my music taste has also changed through the years. therefore , I am enjoying this music and I am happy for their accomplishments. This band has always been there for me and I will always love every last breath they put into their music 💙

  36. saturn speedpaints

    WELL i love the song but...can i ask what in the literal heck just happened in this music video??

    Adrian Star Official

  37. Big Nipp Noah

    Plz do a collab with ptv

  38. Alexx Skye-Greyy

    Mayday Parade went from making music && selling their albums in the parking lots at Warped Tour, to actually performing on stages at Warped Tour. Damn. Full circle. Glad these boys made it out of Tallahassee 👍

  39. ben nu

    new mayday reminds me of a rumbling train or a storm. so sexy

  40. ben nu

    you guys are prime

  41. ben nu

    falling in love feels like FUMBLING OVER NOTHING

  50. IceTeaHate

    Holy crap I haven't listened to these guys since "A lesson in romantics". They are so much heavier now ;o I'm into it tho.

  63. Daniela ManriqueC

  64. Niklas Herberger

    I feel a strong Muse vibe in this one.

  66. Sandy Kandy

  67. blasphemyjhp

  68. Wydozv ExYeest

    First tøp then fob after that bmth now maydayparade WHAT

  69. Gabriel DeJoseph

    i didn't understand a single thing that just happened in the video but I love the song 😂

    Forgetful End

    I don't think anyone could understand this Lol

    Alex Miller

    +Forgetful End really? It's not that hard to follow... The captain lost his job to the janitor

  70. Feud

    Great song!!!!!!

  71. Brody King

    WHAAAAAAT

  72. James Rivas

    How can you jabronies not like this?

  73. Paul Ingraham

    Okay, we get it, Derek. You can scream. Time to go heavy and appeal to a different crowd as if what you were doing wasn't right to begin with. Stop dragging it out lol.

  74. Mar Jay Molit

    Always top on my list! \m/

  75. Kaiden Martinez

    I just love how underrated this band is

  76. devin selner

    This song is so good, my favorite on the album and by far the best start for revealing their new sound. Been a mayday fan since the beginning, love them with all of my heart but this music video was so dumb. Like, so dumb.

  77. Enrredada A Tu Cintura

    i love you guys

  78. Dark Owl

    my first MDP song....

    Dark Owl

    its okay
    ....pretty calming...too calm😒😄

  79. Chase Wesley

    whats with the vox? let the people who produced them ten years ago do it again cuz this isnt up to par

    Chase Wesley

    Valdosta EP fam

    Lucas and Juliet Mount

    Every band needs that album they get to experiment on. Be nice lol

    Al Grabit

    I definitely get where you're coming from, but isn't that the mark of a good band? Changing, and, Idk what word I'm looking for but maybe evolving will do. Like, growing with their fans in a sense. Changing to keep up with the times. I love their past material, but I also love seeing that they're trying out different things! Not offended if you don't agree, that's just how I view it!

    Chase Wesley

    Nah im saying the overall sound production. Doesnt sound good

  80. Matthew Cummins

    They ripped off danger 5! look up danger 5 before you haters give me tha thumb down

  81. Gloria Jackel

    Mayday Mayday!!

  82. Amber Londt

    I love this song and this album❤

  83. Batman909

    Yes yes yes yes. I love this new style.

  84. Lee Jinki

    Yo if my favorite bands keep dropping these bomb songs I'm gonna pass out👏🤘

  85. manny zapien

    That guitar riff though out the song is pretty cool, I like the new sound. Very rock in roll.

  86. Dale

    Don't get how people say this doesn't sound like MDP... It may not be exactly the same sound as before, but I can still hear Mayday Parade in these songs. Black Lines is a pretty decent album.

  87. Vanessa García Torres

    not sure wat teh ful dis was lmao I like it

    Adrian Star Official

    The characters are in a cheesy show and the captain is growing disgruntled with the show and wants to get out of it. That's why he quits reacting to the shaking submarine and explodes in the dressing room. At the end, he ends up being replaced by the janitor.

  88. Roman Casillas

    Eh didn't expect this to be a single, should've chosen a better one from the album

  89. shadowboy0126

    I like the rougher singing in this. They need to do more of that.

    HunterthePanda

    That's what I'm saying!
